Graphene based research and applications are follow

Human progress and development has always been marked by breakthroughs in the control of materials. Since pre-historic times, through the stone, bronze, and iron ages, humans have exploited their environment for materials that can be either used directly or can be modified for their benefit, to make their life more comfortable, productive, or to give them military advantage. One age replaces another when the material that is the basis for its sustainability runs its course and is replaced by another material which presents more qualities. Multi-tasking, speed, versatility, and flexibility are at the heart of modern technology. In recent years a new class of materials that can fulfill these needs have emerged:two-dimensional (2D) crystals. Graphene is probably the most famous example, but there are numerousother examples with amazing electronic and structural properties.[1.] Our goal is to develop futuristic 2-dimensional nano-materials with enhanced physical, chemical, electrical and mechanical properties, which can be applied to overcome the current limits of industrial technologies in terms of mechanical strength/flexibility, chemical stability/reactivity, electronic/thermal conductivity, and processibility.
